Yes, he is, but Danai Sae-Han is taking over the package.

Yes, I'll do that.

I think this is okay to save some build time as long as it has been
checked that building does indeed work.  Many upstream LaTeX documents
require the correct order and number of invocations of latex, bibtex,
makeindex, etc., and often there is no build infrastructure for that.
